Percentage of testing positive after 6 weeks of being negative?
The topic says it all. Please don't hi-jack the thread and say, "No conclusive results until after 3 months"... I get the CDC and all that information. This thread is for those who feel the need for comfort in after a 6 week checkup. So now let's ask, "Has anyone heard or seen someone test positive after testing 6 weeks of being negative" ... I've read this countless of times, but haven't see or heard anyone show forth a positive result after 6 weeks of testing negative.
Of course, I'm not looking for "guarantee" comments, Basically looking for incite on forum go'ers who heard or no of anyone testing positive after 6 weeks.
I thank you for your contribution, at least you're not saying, "3 months, 3 months, 3 months" response. I've been scouring this site and I have not found one result of someone testing positive after 6 weeks. Just trying to calm the nerves of many (who have a good immune system) and myself, (7 weeks 2 days) ...
Thank you, LIZZIE LOU.... Anyone else want to contribute?
I can only back up what Lizzie has said...6 weeks very good, 8 weeks probably will not change. But this site is just a small smaple of people who test. And by looking though responces you will see that only a few people have returned with a positive test. This is not because HIV rates are getting lower it is just the fact that a lot of people never really had a risk to begin with.
Check the archives on aidmeds.com also. You will probably be able to find additional cases on that website. Why even check though? The harder you look, the more cases you will find. Personally, two things keep my anxiety levels in check #1: no hiv websurfing and #2: a good SSRI or a BZD or both. Good luck.....
